lovely location and friendly staff. A couple of suggestion: there are new beds, so they can change the mattress too. The windows must be renew.... it seems the window is still open, but the square is not noisy.

I stayed here for a couple nights at the end of October. For a solo traveller, this hostel had what I needed: a central, awfully convenient location as a base to explore the city; and a bed at the end of the day. The hostel pretty much came as advertised after reading some of the other reviews. The location is...

I went to this hostel and was very happy with its proximity to the center of the city. However, there were a couple of things that weren't so good. First, the elevator was tiny and I could barely fit my bags into it. Second, they only took cash and I had to borrow money. Lack of air conditioning was another...

Great location in Barcelona. 15-20 minutes walk to the beach, and 5-10 minutes to La Rambla. Cleanliness in the (shared) bathroom was below average, but not the worst. Hostel didn't have an AC so it got pretty hot in the room since we were there in July. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The hostel had a room with 2...

Excellent location, in the Barri Gothic quarter, right next to the cathedral. The building itself is an old tenement with a charming lift. The rooms are very basic, ours was only equipped with a basin and a mirror (apart from beds and bedside tables of course), but they are clean and serve well their purpose. It can be a bit...

Stayed in Jan easy to reach from underground clean basic rooms walking distance to cathedral old town harbour ect .Lost my wallet whilst I was there and Julia at reception was very helpful. Don't forget to sit out on the balcony and enjoy the view. For a budget stay hard to beat.

Great location right in central barcelona, near main tourist sites and lots of great restaurants. Each room has a cute balcony with a great view of the plaza, cathedral, and roman walls. Staff was friendly and very accommodating. Bathrooms were perfectly clean especially considering everything was bright white tile. Overall, extremely satisfied with hostel layetana.

HL was very basic. We were willing to put up with the noise from the street below to enjoy the awesome view of the cathedral just outside out window, and also, they had to stay open because there is no AC and it is SCORCHING (we went in July). It is 5 minutes walk from Las Ramblas and the harbor....

“Just ask for a room not on the main street, so you won't have to wake up when traffic begins early in the morning. But keep in mind that "early" is a very relative concept for spanish people, I think they consider "early" at 9:00 AM”
